Let There Be
Light Stars: R2-D2 Planeterium
Is there anything more relaxing than falling asleep counting stars on your ceiling? Yes, tons -- including bubble baths. But it's still a good time, and galaxies far far away from passing out on the bathroom floor. Jk jk, I love that shit. Mmmm, SO COLD ON MY BARE CHEST.
today, the company fixed the release date (September 15) and price ($91) for the planetarium. The scaled replica projects about 10,000 stars onto the ceiling in your living room, and as a bonus, it shows the location of the Death Star, too.
The R2-D2 Planetarium uses a 1W white LED as a light source, runs for three hours on four AAA batteries and stands 21cm high. It has a projection range of 1.5-2.3m/4.9-7.5ft and a projection area of 1.8m/5.9ft circumference.
Would be great in your kid's bedroom, right? Hell no, that thing belongs in the master! Especially if you're gonna be playing a little Luke and Leia role-playing. "Please tell me you meant Han and Leia." *dry-heaving* Yeah I just realized.
